Per Jeff Goodman’s Twitter account, Kyle Wiltjer received his release from the University of Kentucky today. It will be sent to a limited number of schools according to Goodman, and will not become a “circus.”

Best of luck to Kyle Wiltjer as he looks to find a new path for his future.

    If he goes to Gonzaga I think you are looking at the next Adam Morrison, great college player but will be a flop in the NBA, hope not but the NBA exposes your weaknesses.

    You know, at first Kyle’s decision was really no big deal to me, and I go it…but the more I hear he wants to be the “focal point” of a team, the more I’m wondering why he committed here in the first place, and I’m starting to question his work ethic. I like the kid, I think he would have a role on this year’s team…a small one, a certainly not a “focal point”, but a role none the less. Or, he could have redshirted and worked on that “work ethic” part, and prepared himself like he needs to. But the more I hear that “focal point” stuff, the more I question the kid.

    He belongs out west. East coast ball is to tough for him. He needs to be out there with the other slow, weak, hippies. Real ball is played on the east coast. It’s not for the weak. Now he has more time on his hands to make those stupid youtube videos, instead of being in the gym trying to get faster and stronger…. were his a$$ should have been in the first place!!! see ya Wiltjer!!

    #11 read #6 again.. He is right. Morrison was an NBA flop. I think he has played overseas last couple years. Look at his stats here:

    Matt told me to tell you guys — don’t expect Jacquan Lyles to replace him.

    Still don’t understand: If Kyle wants to lead a team and be the focal point of the offense why didn’t he do it last season when we certainly needed it from him?

    Does he not think he’ll need to compete for a job at Gonzaga? This isn’t your mom and dad’s Gonzaga we’re talking about. These guys are a team full of better and quicker Kyle Wiltjers. How does he manage to stand out from any of them. PLUS, transfering will not help his draft status because among the NBA GM’s, scouts, and reporters he’ll be known as the kid who ran from NBA caliber players.

    #24 – With his lack of certain physical gifts (speed and elite athleticism) Wiltjer can’t be the focal point in Cal’s dribble-drive offense. Also, Cal basically refuses to play zone, which is what Wiltjer needs to hide him on defense. Basically, to use Wiltjer to his full potential, Cal would have to completely change his offensive and defensive styles, which wouldn’t be worth it (even last year, in all likelihood). Plenty of college teams DO play zone, and utilize an offensive style that could get Wiltjer 20ppg (see: Canadian national team).

    Of course he could really improve his game if he put in the strength-training and other things that have been suggested ad naseaum, but that might not be the best road to take. He’s likely NEVER going to be elite athletically, and likely NEVER a focus in the dribble drive. He will always be limited to a spot-up shooter in Cal’s system.



  27. Then why
    5:08 pm June 26, 2013 Permalink

    #26 then any idea why he was ever here in the first place?

    #26 – all that being said, he still can’t jump, has no quickness, can’t hit a three when someone guards him, but he’s slow. I think he’s a great kid, but I won’t miss his lack of talent. He was going to ride the pine this year so I can understand his desire to leave. Remember Michael Bradley? He was supposed to be the next Larry Bird, according to his father. How’d that work out. You won’t see Wiltjer in the NBA.

    Michael Bradley put up major stats while playing in the Big East. Then was a first round draft pick. Not Bird by a long shot, but…

    Kyle is. S o f t

    I bet his body is like the pillsbury dough boys

    Only position he’ll be the focal point is the at the fry station at McDonald’s during lunch rush



  31. Not only that
    7:03 pm June 26, 2013 Permalink

    And Michael Bradley was consensus 2nd team All American. Played 5 NBA seasons and 5 more overseas. If Wiltjer has a Bradley like career, he will be doing fine.

    Lets all admit this. He runs like Michael J. Fox.

    Could’ve probably won another Championship. Practiced and played with the best college players in the country which would’ve improved your weak game. And despite having a weak body and game showed some strong character by honoring your commitment. Good riddance traitor.

    Plenty of PT available for those who want to work for it. Kyle has no-one to blame for his lack of minutes but himself. He needs to clear his head and think this thing thru…..redshirt-work on def. and upper body strength plus improve his vertical a bit more. Gonzaga etal isn’t the answer. Listen to your heart Kyle
